Yesterday I took the kids on a field trip to the local Crisis Pregnancy Center. Two RSVP'd, and seven more called an hour before we were supposed to leave - AND needed rides from their house to the church. Once I was done figuring all that out, one of the girls who RSVP'd called to say she was on her way. She wanted to be early so we could hang out.
All this probably wouldn't have made it to the Crisis level. However, I weaned myself off of the narcotic pain killer a few days ago, was behind on my Ibuprofin dose AND I'd been up til 3 am the night before due to the barometric pressure from the two massive thunderstorm systems coming through.
It all went well once I figured it out. However, I took my stress out on my hair with a curling iron. Think 80's.
The day redeemed itself when I drove home after carting all the children back to their various abodes and discovered the UPS truck arriving just ahead of me with a HUGE box of plants I'd ordered two months ago.
Spent the next 3 hours happily covering myself with mud, getting dirt under my fingernails, mixing fertilizer with potting soil and the red clay that surrounds my house and praying these plants lived and bloomed.
And then went to bed, where I tossed and turned because of MORE barometric pressure. My husband convinced me to take another narcotic pill, which I did, and then got very loopy telling him all about a blackberry trellis.
And then I dreamed one of my good friends fell in love with a G. I . Joe toy who came to life and was from Terminator.
So today I have done nothing so far besides browse pinterest, youtube, and facebook. The kitchen is a mess, the dining room table needs help, my bedroom does too, and the living room needs tidied.
Lest you think I am just some suzie-homemaker who keeps her house pristine and knits and whistles and has it all together. Hopefully you don't think that with all my posts starting with the time and the fact that I'm still in my pajamas, but a good disclaimer is always healthy.
Off to wash dishes... altho today I think I either need a nap or a 7:30 bedtime.
